Instagram in April

As always, I like to share my favourite photos from Instagram over the past month. Here are my top photos from April!

Easter Selfie

This was posted on April 1. I don’t actually think I took this selfie during easter, but it’s when I shared it. I have a habit of walking around the house trying to find good lighting to take a selfie after I’ve done my makeup. My camera feed is filled with selfies, food, nature and clouds!

Letterman Jacket

This was posted on April 9. In connection with the Letterman OOTD, I had to share at least one of the pictures of me in the jacket on Insta. It’s so adorable and comfy! The colours are bright and playful, and it just looks good!

Carrot Cake Balls

This was posted on April 10. My only new baking creation I’ve tried this month! I saw the Carrot Cake Balls Ro made on Nerdy Nummies and knew I had to try it.  They were so cute, and were the perfect snack!

Tarte Lip Paint in Epic

This was posted on April 12. This was my favourite Tarte Lip paint that I tried. It’s in the colour Epic, and I think it’s just that. For me, this was quite an adventurous colour, and I was pleasantly surprised by how much I liked the outcome!

Wanderlust Zine Page

This was posted on April 18. After making my little zine, I had fun trying to take themed photos of each page. Rory has a little pencil sharpener that’s shaped like an old fashioned plane, so I wanted to include it. It’s actually my favourite bit in this photo really!

That’s all for this post! What was your favourite photos from Instagram this month?

Instagram in March

Now that we are entering April (crazy!), it’s time to look back at my top pictures from Instagram in March.

Before & After

before and after

This was uploaded on March 1. This was my first sneak peek into my final boudoir photos, and I was blown away! These photos have definitely given me a boost of confidence and self-love. I still very much recommend the experience!

Autumn Flatlay

This was uploaded on March 4. My favourite flat lay I’ve done lately. This was inspired by one of the many flat lays on Pinterest, and I love how it came out! There isn’t much in it in terms of objects, but I really think it’s effective and pretty!

Blogiversary

This was uploaded on March 6. The day of my blogiversary for obvious reasons! It was quite nice to share this on Insta as I have a mixture of online friends and people I know in real life who I don’t really talk about my blog with. Since the post, I’ve had a friend reach out and talk to me about my blog which is really nice!

Boudoir Shoot

180223-111

This was uploaded on March 16. Surprise, another boudoir photo! I can’t help it, each photo I see makes me so proud and happy. The photographer, Victoria, likes to say that how she does these shoots is to show the subject the best version of themselves. I have to agree with that. I’m so thrilled with how I look in these photos (even the more risque ones hehe), and I love that I now have these forever. It started as a gift for Rory, but it’s also wound up as a gift for myself!

Anniversary

This was uploaded on March 25. Our anniversary! A big highlight for me this month. I went through a lot of our wedding photos trying to decide which to share. I landed on this as it showcased all the wedding traditions we did.

June Favourites

June Favourites

Hello friends! So we are now at the end of June. We’re officially entering the second half of 2017. Before diving into my favourites for the month, just a heads up! I’ve been commenting on lots of posts this morning and they’re vanishing again. So please check your spam and free me from there if possible 😀 (Why does WordPress do this to me every two weeks??) Anyway, back to the topic at hand.

Let me share with you some favourites of mine from the past month.

Movies

Wonder Woman

Aaah! I can’t get over how much I love this movie. I’m a sucker in general for superhero movies, but this one just got me so pumped. It may be because it has female lead, but the fight scenes seemed so much better to me than other superhero movies. Plus Gal Gadot is amazing. I also loved her relationship with Chris Pine’s character, the romance came second to their partnership of getting the job done, which really more action movies should do.

Sleeping with Other People

Not a recent movie, but one I recently watched. I haven’t watched any rom coms in ages, so I figured let’s find a random recent one. This one wasn’t the greatest, but it was just silly fun. It’s all about sex basically, and the ‘modern’ dating scene, which I don’t really get, but I liked the two leads. Also, I saw lots of familiar faces in this movie, and it made me laugh.

Music

Hayley Kiyoko – Grovel to Tempo

The only other song I know of Hayley’s is “Girls Like Girls”, I was going down a YouTube hole, and after listening to that one, I was curious about this. It’s very catchy and makes me want to do some crazy dancing of my own. I have it stuck in my head a lot.

AJR – Weak

A catchy song to sing/yell and dance too. I love dance/electronic songs. They often find their way to me, and then I listen to them over and over for weeks until I find another one. Rory and I often sing/yell this together in the car when it shows up. We know the whole thing off by heart 😂

Books

Buffering by Hannah Hart

28217831

I am a fan of My Drunk Kitchen, always have been, so it was interesting to learn more about the life of the person behind it all. I’ve been following Hannah since 2013, and she is such a positive, amazing person. It was really inspiring to read about her life, and how in a way, we’re all still learning. We need time to ‘buffer’, and to figure things out.

The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck by Mark Manson

28257707

Another non-fiction read. This is like a self-help book for millenials. The title is misleading, it’s not about not giving a fuck about anything, it’s about finding out what things we should give a fuck about. The important things in life, and letting the not-so-important things go. This book reminds us that it’s okay to fail, to get mad, to suck, we’re not perfect, no one is.

Games

Singstar

So I haven’t played this much this past month. Just once, but I forgot how much I love singing ABBA! I am not a great singer, but I’m not terrible either, I just love karaoke. I haven’t yet worked up the nerve to do karaoke in public, but at home, let me at it!

Risk

Okay, so another game I’ve only played once, but it was so much fun! Once we all got the hang of the rules, it was really fun. I could see it leading to some disagreements though, as you fight over certain countries, or keep losing battles 😂

Something New

Vlogging is the new thing I’ve done this month. I have now done two videos, where I sit down in front of the camera and chat. It’s feeling less weird now than the first time I did it, but I would love to do other kinds of vlogs. I like the idea of a “Day in the Life”, or a “Come with Me”, a “House Tour”, or maybe even baking? I’m already thinking of future ideas, but I may give it a while, I’m still recovering from the Q’n’A post 😂

What are some of your favourites from this month?
